"The reason for safeguarding our planet transcends the simple reality that we're here -- that we inhabit Earth. We are part of Earth -- product of all that came before, kindred to all that now exists. ... We living beings -- mammals, amphibia, reptiles, plants -- we are air and water incarnate. "

-- Jacques Cousteau and Susan Schiefelbein, The Human, The Orchid and the Octopus
